July 5, taking a toll of twenty-five persons; and it is also known
that the epidemic raged in San Felipe.'
The cholera epidemics of 1833 and 1834 attacked the State of
Coahuila and Texas so suddenly and so ruthlessly that every
activity, except the constant immigration of Anglo-Americans, was
paralyzed temporarily. The panic which was created by the mere
mention of cholera forbade any sort of assemblage of people, such
as a mass meeting or a military organization. However, with the
passing of these two devastating epidemic years, Texans com-
menced to revive their civil, political, and military life. Having
been relieved from the constant fear of sudden death, the Anglo-
Americans were free to take steps to attend to their differences
with the Mexican government.
